Samenvatting

Advances in nanotechnology have allowed physicists and engineers to miniaturize electronic structures to the limit where finite-size related phenomena start to impact their properties. This book discusses such phenomena and models made for their description. The book starts from the semiclassical description of nonequilibrium effects, details the scattering theory used for quantum transport calculations, and explains the main interference effects. It also describes how to treat fluctuations and correlations, how interactions affect transport through small islands, and how superconductivity modifies these effects. The last two chapters describe new emerging fields related with graphene and nanoelectromechanics. The focus of the book is on the phenomena rather than formalism, but the book still explains in detail the main models constructed for these phenomena. It also introduces a number of electronic devices, including the single-electron transistor, the superconducting tunnel junction refrigerator, and the superconducting quantum bit.

Recensie(s)

This textbook provides an intermediate-level introduction to the very rich physics of nanoelectronics. The book treats in a balanced way the semi-classical and quantum transport regimes, and bridges up-to-date research topics, such as molecular electronics, graphene, NEMS, and full-counting statistics, with more traditional material. All theory is presented in a didactic way with clear focus on the experiments and physics without the use of heavy mathematical machinery. It is suited for a lecture course as well as for self-study with extensive references and starting points for further studies, and plenty of exercises. * Mads Brandbyge, Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, Technical University of Denmark * This is an excellent textbook on nanoelectronics, with clear explanations of the mesoscopic physics combined with discussions of nanoscale systems of current interest (e.g. Cooper pair boxes, NEMs). There is a good balance of physics, diagrams, and mathematical detail. It will be a valuable textbook for graduate students starting in the field of nanoelectronics. * Derek Lee, Imperial College London *
